    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent mission. Thoughtful orientation and onboarding process. Always thinking about improving the quality of life and saving lives of patients. Good Work/life balance. You can get involved in as much or as little extra projects for your development as you want.

    Cons

    Can't think of any true negatives. Maple Grove cafeteria needs an upgrade - add vegetarian/vegan options, more fresh vegetables, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Keep stressing the importance of working hard and sharing knowledge. Never stop innovating.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Full Package Benefits (Car, Expenses, 401K...), good products, well known in industry, can make great money if lucky to be in the right territory at the right time but otherwise money is average.

    Cons

    Increasingly becoming more and more micromanaged with new “tools” to “help” us track our car mileage, pressure to log everything now in new CRM...Acquisitions add to our product bags with added plan but no added compensation. Working more and earning less. No real regard for work life balance.

    Pros

    We’re a huge company, but it doesn’t feel like one. Commraderary has been my experience throughout division, dept. etc. You are rewarded and acknowledged for your efforts and hard work.

    Cons

    Kind of disconnect between marketing and clinical needs.

    Advice to Management

    Involve clinicals when developing products, to gain insight to other products we may want to add to our comprehensive portfolio for treatment.
